dc.description.abstractThe present publication is the first comprehensive monograph on the historical development of fire and firefighting services in the territory of former Czechoslovakia, from the earliest times until now. The book begins with a treatise on the importance of fire to mankind and human attempts to control fire in the period of antiquity. Subsequently, the readers will familiarize themselves with the first legislation regulating firefighting in the Middle Ages and the establishment of fire brigades in the XIX century. The author then presents voluntary and professional fire service in Czechoslovakia as well as in the independent Czech and Slovak Republics. The monograph is suitably accompanied by a large number of photographs, memories of contemporaries and period materials, which have not yet been published in the available literature. Based on his long-term research, the author managed to clarify the historical development of firefighting, but also, for example, the firefighting equipment in the territory of former Czechoslovakia.en_US
